Know More about this tour

Your visit to the Maui Ocean Center will be a journey of discovery through the vast, extraordinary underwater world that lies beyond Hawaii's surf-ringed shores.

Explore the marine park at your own pace and discover more than 60 interactive exhibits. All of the marine creatures you will encounter are native to Hawaii, including the coral, the fish and the plant life. The Maui Ocean Center seeks to portray the integrity of these animals’ native habitats in order to help you develop a deeper understanding of Hawaii's seas -- one of the most unique aquatic environments on earth.

To enhance your experience, trained ocean naturalists are available to answer question and share their insights through presentations at the Living Reef, Turtle Lagoon, Hammerhead Harbor, Discovery Pool and Open Ocean exhibits.

Exhibits:

The Living Reef
Discover how Hawaii, an island more than 2,000 miles (3,218.7 km) from any continent, has produced a unique assemblage of marine life unequaled on earth due to its isolation.

Turtle Lagoon
The most common sea turtle in Hawaii is the honu , or green turtle, which is named for the color of its body fat . This outdoor exhibit allows a close-up view of these marine reptiles from both above and below the water's surface.

The Discovery Pool
Constructed as an ocean rock pool, the Discovery Pool holds a variety of harmless marine animals, including sea stars, sea urchins and sea cucumbers. You are welcome to touch and handle many of the inhabitants of this display.

Sting Ray Cove

Sting Ray Cove is home to stingrays, eagle rays and occasionally juvenile hammerhead sharks. Because it's rare that rays spend much time near the water's surface, this large outdoor pool is shaded to protect their sensitive eyes.

The Open Ocean
In this ‘Underwater Journey’ exhibit, predators and prey coexist in a 750,000-gallon (2.8 million-liter) saltwater aquarium, the largest in the state. Stroll through a long, clear tunnel, which provides a 240-degree view of nearly 2,000 fish !

  • small aquarium, nothing like shed's in Chicago

  • did not take the tour, but the staff there would come right up to us and explain things about the fishes, reef and environment for various exhibits, when they saw us standing by an exhibit for awhile longer than just passing through it.

  • This was a rip off. They end up charging us more that it actually cost to get in at the door.

  • its was a lot of fun, my kids loves the place especially the big sharks tank,

  • Really nice, needed more for the price though!

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Very nice experience. But it is loaded with wild and crazy kids running all around!! Unfortunately modern parents don't control their little darlings.

  • The kids loved it. We went during inclement weather and it was perfect to go before we went snorkeling, the kids were able to learn about ocean life. Very educational

  • Very small. Didn't take long to go through. We mainly enjoyed the restaurant inside the gates on the water. I would rate this place 10-15 a person, but nothing more.

  • Went just yesterday with my stepson, his wife and 14 month old. We were sure how the babe would be but, he loved it! The fish kept him so engaged but he loved the most touching the starfish, sea cucumber. A great time. The aquarium is very informative as well. We were there for 2 hours and could have stayed longer.
